was iraq in our hearts too in the past 10 years of war an occupation? Never heard a single kutbah about it.
maybe if you went to juma prayer every week you would hear the khutbahs about iraq too you dummy
yes .. I heard khutbas about Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan … very frequently ..
but still my humble request is to appreciate the effort with the idea of ‘better to come late then never’
You ( the Iraqi people)are always in our heart. When you cried, we cried too. When you are tortured, our hearts ached too. Please don’t mind it if your case is not mentioned in the khutbah of an American mosque, because, my brother, you are always remembered and your affairs are a burning flame in the heart of every true Muslim across the world. I , by Allah, consider the iraqis one of the bravest people in the history of Islam. Some might may find it difficult to mention the cruelty of the US and its allies towards our dear brothers the Iraqi people and also other Muslims in other nations due the pressure from their environments which is manifested by the kufars. But since the present Syrian government is the enemy of US and Israel, no one will be afraid of speaking ill about it. Inshalla, Iraq will be free and the Ahlal Sunna wal Jamaa’as will be the victorious, it is the promise of Allah and it will certainly happen soon or later.
assalamu alaikun wa ra7matullahi wa barakaatuh
He is not a dummy.
please don’t call our brother a “dummy”
Sure sounds like a dummy. He listens to one khutbah and acts as if he’s heard every single khutbah ever by Sh yasir

BACKBITTING AND SLANDER (PART ONE)
30 Rabi-al-Awwal 1432
24 Febrauray 2012
Says Allah, Most High:
“And Allah does not love those who make Zulm”
Nabi Salallahu alayhi wasallam said:
“Gheebah (backbiting) is worse than Zina”
Whilst every Hadith is a treasure trove of information, glad tidings and warnings, this particular Hadith must rank amongst those requiring much deep reflection.
Serious concern for the Aakhirah does not allow any space for laxity and carelessness.
The eyes of those who live as if there is never going to be death or accountability will only open when the pangs of death usher them into the everlasting world.
That slandering, backbiting and bad mouthing fellow Muslims have become something of a pastime is an undisputed fact.
Much pleasure is derived by the nafs.
Much amusement, excitement and thrills are experienced when we cut the reputation, gnaw at the character and chew at the personality of innocent Muslims.
To the silent flute of Shaytaan we dance, jive, clap hands and echo his song of destruction and mayhem.
O, how our mouths salivate and our tongues roll out reams of rumours.
“Did you hear, did you know”, with open mouths and wide eyes, rolling eyes, we exclaim!
O, how our fingers madly sprint to text the “guess what” messages about so and so.
The e-mails gallop madly in the race to be the first to spread the slander!
The phone lines get hot with lengthy conversations of how bad this one or that one is!
When a person deliberately backbites, he is causing untold harm to himself.
Know well, that even as he rips reputations to pieces and paints black with his tongue the image of a fellow Muslim, he is in reality, destroying both his worldly and everlasting life.
The vapour of the poison of hatred which he spreads, will sooner or later overpower him; for Allah Ta’ala despises Zulm and oppression.
For Allah Ta’ala loves Truth and justice.
When we slander and backbite about any of the innocent creation of Allah, we cause havoc and Fitnah.
We cause destruction and chaos.
We ruin and we damage.
Sins differ in scope and nature.
Some sins are restricted to one’s self.
Other sins net and snare the innocent and the gullible and the naive.
If one does not perform a salaah, he has indeed committed a terrible sin.
However, the ravages of this sin, are limited to himself.
When one backbites and slanders, the sin draws in others towards doom and destruction.
An example is Salaah:
Generally, a person who discards salaah, will regret and have remorse.
But a slanderer, nay, he celebrates and justifies his evil.
Aha, we have succeeded in planting the seeds of doubt. Now all that needs to be done is to sit back and enjoy the fun.
The poor innocent soul suddenly finds himself in the eye of a storm.
“Qassams” don’t help.
Evidence doesn’t matter.
The Shar’i system of verification is abandoned.
The tongues are wagging.
And so the tears are spilled and wet the pillow in the dark of the night.
And so the sobs from a broken heart are stifled with pain and humiliation.
And so does Allah see and watch the suffering of the innocent.
Now who can assist that forlorn, pitiful soul?
Now who can console that dejected, rejected creature?
Who can unwrap the damage done which was fathered by jealousy and born out of spite?
And so Allah watches.
Is He not BASEER? (The All-Watching)
Is he not SAMIE’? (The All-Hearing)
Is He not QAWI (The All-Powerful)?
Is he not SABOOR (The All-Patient)!
Is He not HALEEM (The Tolerant)?
Yes, it takes time. Allah is never in a hurry, for to hurry is a sign of weakness.
And Allah is Strong, very, very strong!
And Allah is Merciful, very, very Merciful!
Perhaps, the person will repent.
Perhaps, he will understand his folly.
Perhaps, he will think of death and accountability.
Perhaps, he will come to his senses.
Perhaps, he was hasty.
Allah looks for excuses to pardon those who do wrong.
So Allah gives time to a person to repent and to ask for forgiveness from the injured one.
And if a person, instead of making amends, proudly continuous to feast and gorge upon the reputation of his Muslim brother, then Allah puts His Whip to work.
Depending on the severity of the slander and the standing of the victim in Allah’s Sight, the Whip strikes.
The mere crack of The Whip is enough punishment for some.
The peaceful sleep is gone, the delicious food is tasteless.
The laughter is hollow and the mind cannot find peace.
Money is useless and the warm companionship of friends cannot defrost the ice-cold feeling of the heart.
Some are such beloved friends of Allah, that though they forgive the slanderer and back biter, Allah refuses to forgive.
For to hurt those who are Allah’s beloved friends, is akin, according to the Hadith, to declaring WAR against Allah.
Allah toasts the kidneys and roasts the livers in the World of such scoundrels.
Moulana Aqeelur-Rahmaan Saheb (Daamat barakatuhum) of Jalalabad, narrated an incident of a person who bad-mouthed Moulana Maseehullah (Rahmatullahi alayh).
This person spared no effort in his smear campaign and spared no ear from his slander. Maseehullah Rahmatullahi alyah remained silent.
The person’s malice blocked his mind and his jealousy sealed his eyes.
Moulana Maseehullah Rahmatullahi alayh’s silence was misunderstood as a weakness and an admission of guilt.
Years passed by.
The mocking continued.
Years passed by and the silence continued.
Until one day, late in his life, the person woke up one day and lo and behold… worms crawled out from his tongue.
Doctors could not help him.
Hakeems could not understand.
He could not eat.
Allah’s Whip had cracked!
His eyes rolled with fear.
All the bravado was gone.
The ecstasy of gheebat had warned of long ago.
The time to reap the bitter fruits had arrived!
If you have a sound mind, you wouldn’t post such an immature and disgusting comment. it is not him but you who act as if you heard all the khutbas. can you mention a single khutba of Yassir Qaddi explaining about the oppression of the Iraqi people. Abu Amar Yassir Qadhi is one of my favorite Islamic lecturer but i won’t appreciate him for what he has not done. but i understand the environment he resides so i don’t mind it. you rush for condemning the guy only because you thought he attacked Yassir. it might not be the case, think again.
I heard just about every khutba available from yasir qadhi. he never, not once mentioned iraq or afghanistan in any khutba. So who is the dummy now? You sure are fast to label your brother in islam in an insulting manner. I do not see the least bit of spirit of unity in here so I suggest you two to keep on listening to khutbas as often and as much as you can. InshaAllah it will help you mature.
You are right .. It is first time that he touch such kind of issue .. but there are many other speaker who spoke about it … anyway, LETS ALL not make it a matter of discord.
Lets focus on real issue of SYRIA …
I’m am your brother from Ethiopia.( Even the Habeshis are remembering you.)
